Melbourne Accommodation 

Riverview hotels along the Yarra River

Perched on the banks of Melbourne's meandering natural asset, Southbank is an ideal base for exploring inner-city Melbourne or getting into town with ease for early morning business. Home to the illustrious Crown Casino and an array of promenade eateries, Southbank accommodation offerings include the 5-star Hilton and Quay West, as well as a selection of 4-star apartments in the heart of this entertainment precinct.

Around the river bend, Docklands has all the best elements of Melbourne life: art, culture, food, wine and sport. Just minutes from the CBD you will find a handful of 4-star Docklands hotels circling the waterfront, backing onto Etihad Stadium (aka Docklands Stadium).

Airport accommodation at Tullamarine

The closest Melbourne accommodation choices near the airport are the PARKROYAL, Holiday Inn and ibis budget. Linked directly to the terminal, PARKROYAL offers day delegate packages for business travellers and plenty of suites if you need a quick kip before a connecting flight. A short shuttle down the road you will also find the 4-star Mantra Tullamarine Hotel and Best Western Motel.

Don't be caught off guard when booking your flights to Melbourne – while Tullamarine is the city's main airport, many budget airlines also operate out of Avalon Airport, which is closer to Geelong. Avalon can be a good option if you're planning to travel the Great Ocean Road, but Tullamarine is your best port for Melbourne, just 23 kilometres from the CBD.

Support your team; stay near the stadium

There's no denying Melbourne is a sports-mad city, playing host to some of the most highly anticipated events of the calendar year. If you're planning a November holiday to catch the Melbourne Cup, there are a number of Flemington Racecourse hotels that will have you beating the crowds to the race that stops the nation.

Stay close to the cricket or AFL action by getting in early and booking a hotel near the Melbourne Cricket Ground, where the Mantra, Mercure and 5-star Hilton on the Park are all within reach. If it's tennis that takes your fancy, the Rod Laver Area is just across the way from the MCG, making East Melbourne the best choice to catch all the sporting action.
